The Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) for Food Security Analysis framework is a standardized tool developed by FAO and WFP to classify food security into five distinct phases. Following the success of IPC in the regions of Africa and Latin America, In order to expand the process to South Asia, FAO held workshops in Bangladesh and Nepal, and later brought IPC to Pakistan. FAO and WFP commissioned SDPI to conduct necessary evaluations by deploying IPC tools. SDPI will further conduct Acute Food Security Analysis, and prepare a map depicting results of the analysis.
In the first phase of the project, a review committee finalized a list of indicators. In the second phase trained enumerators were sent out for data collection at the district level.
SDPI supported policy consultation on IPC consultation output with key decision makers at national level meeting.
